It was my chum Ali's birthday yesterday and as she happens to have mad skills in the baking-O-deliciousness department I decide to make her an apron.
The fabric I used started life about 15 years ago as a little dress. That I wore MAYBE three times, and the last time was at least a decade ago.
I have no idea why it has moved with us 3 times (once internationally!) but it has. Maybe it was always hoping to be an apron. The red was leftover from a version of Vogue V8615 that I made (It turned out REALLY badly!). I also used three tiny heart shaped buttons that I might have compulsively bought about a year ago, with no set project in mind.
And here's how it turned out:
Bearing in mind that it's going to a much skinnier person. Oh hey, and my ironing board and a bowl of beads. Sweet.
The little red dots are the buttons. I plopped them dead center of the flowers, randomly like, and just because.
There are a few more pics over at my blog as well as the first apron I made. It's not a refashion as I made it out of fabric that my mama got me as a giftie, but I kind of love it... By "kind of" I mean I actually gave some thought to sleeping in it. x
